    "She puts itching powder in Albert’s coat; unbeknown to Emily, Albert has bad eczema and the itching powder makes him scratch so badly he draws blood. Emily then replaces the sugar in the break room with salt. Astrid feels ill all day having swallowed a large gulp of salty tea at breakfast time.

    Next, Emily spreads butter on the floor of the bathroom. Alison slips on the butter and bangs her head, losing consciousness momentarily. Enjoying herself, Emily inflates a paper bag and explodes it behind Anthony who is on a step ladder changing a light bulb. Anthony falls off the step ladder in shock and cuts his hand on the broken bulb. Finally, Emily replaces Arthur’s insulin, which Arthur self injects for diabetes, with water. Later, when driving home, Arthur suffers hypoglycaemia as a result of insulin deficiency which causes him to black out at the wheel and crash the car, resulting in both legs being broken."

    Thanks for any help!

    Emily has committed Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm, the common assault elevated due to his increased weakness (eggskull rule in tort).

    Common assault for astrid, because the effects as per the 1861 statute "trivial and transient"

    in relation to emily I'd again say Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm.
    Anthony: Assault Occasioning Actual Bodily Harm
    Arthur: Id say attempted murder, she acted recklessly and with such callous disregard for the potentiality of her actions, where the lack of insulin itself would be potentially fatal to a diabetic, could only show the requisite mens rea necessary for the elevated charge of attempted murder, as per he requisite intention to kill can be inferred by the circumstances: R v Walker and Hayles (1990) 90 Cr App R 226.
